A Bob and Ray Takeoff on "Mary Noble Back Stage Wife"
A spoof on the radio soap opera, "Mary Noble Back Stage Wife," which aired from 1935 to 1959. It is probably funnier to those who are or were familiar with "Mary Noble;" otherwise, the dry humor may escape those who are not acquainted with the original radio program which aired daily during the work week. I first heard "Bob and Ray" in the summer of 1951 when they aired five times a week for fifteen minutes daily in the mornings in Los Angeles. During the late 1950's they were on during the evenings as other top notch programs had ceased airing.
